is that john of the other republicans ever liked mitt romney and he didn't do anything during the campaign to endear himself to them. don't forget, he attacked them all in the primaries. this is kind of the revenge of the clowns here. he knocked them off one at a time. he sort of knocked them over in iowa and elsewhere around the campaign trail. number two, his campaign was based on a negative. it was based on the idea that he would have to win because president obama was so bad. there was no philosophy to it. mitt romney's campaign was kind of the end of the line of the conservative era that began coherently with ronald reagan in 1980. mitt romney was the ultimate remainder man. that's why they have an easier time of dumping on him right now. >> so the clown car has backed up to run over mitt romney. that's the image for the night tonight. >> yes, it is. >> like that woman who didn't like her husband, remember she drove over her husband in the parking lot and drove over him again. i don't want to get involved in that legal case but i do remember the pictures. let's go to john heilemann he

. this is the john glenn. it is the biggest boat in that fleet. the department still uses it to patrol but given all the potential threats to homeland security, there are questions about just how effective this boat could be. that's because it's out there on the water but the communication system is broken. the radio can't transmit a distress call. also the coast guard documentation has expired. >> part of the communication system doesn't work. it appears the certification for the boat that should have been applied for back in august, the date was missed. >> reporter: so the question now whether to apply for grants to repair the boat. those repairs will cost about $700,000. the other option is to lobby capitol hill and to see if they can get some money to buy a new state of the art boat. there are a couple of options. we have to figure out and wait to see what comes of this. as you mentioned earlier, there are potential discussions of cutting the number of medics during the overnight hours. we'll have more on that story coming up at 5:30. pike and andrea, back to you. >> thank you. >>> well, the top
for us to move on and find those responsible and bring them to justice. >> john mccain and a few other senators as you know have been very vocal saying this administration was either incompetent or involved in a coverup, those words. what you heard today, does it put that question to rest? >> it really does. and no one who's ever come in from the intelligence community has ever suggested anything along those lines. i asked the general in particular about ambassador rice and he was very clear. the unclassified talking points we were given were their best assessment they could give us without compromising classified information. and her comments track that exactly. we were given that late on saturday. she appeared early on sunday. there is simply no there there and i wish my gop colleagues could move on to focus on what we should be focusing on, which is finding those responsible and bringing them to justice. in a year in which it wouldn't have been a presidential election that's what we would be doing and that's what we should be doing now. >> well, about that affair with paula broadwel
